Estrus synchronization can...
Source: Utah State University Introduction Reproduction could be considered the most important production trait on a cow-calf operation. Economic outputs are sustained when cattle rebreed and calve every year in a timely manner. However, when cattle are unable to rebreed efficiently,...
Source: University of Maryland Extension, Sarah Potts The overall goal for a seasonal cow-calf operation should be to have cows calve roughly every 365 days (or once per year).  Some management tools, such as estrus synchronization programs, can be used to...
